Has anybody ever written java externals for implementing a genetic algorithm. I need these externals for an installation I am working on, and I am having some difficulty with regards to coding this algorithm in Java. Any help would be great.
If I remember correctly, it walks you through the an example of pathfinding using a GA. The impression I was left with is that GAs take a lot of tweaking to find the right blend of encoding, population size, crossover and fitness functions.
